I am in 100% agreement that our Child Protection System is very, very flawed. Caseworkers often violate laws. Even in states that have laws that negate their immunity should they violate any state or federal laws; they are not being held accountable. This has to change.
I am sick and tired of CPS stealing my children. I want my family back, where is the damned justice?!?
CPS and the Federal laws enabling its continuance and funding is a horrendous usurpation of the Constitutional rights of biological parents, the primary victims of CPS. Possibly what motivates this racket, not only in the USA, but throughout the western world, is the incentive for the establishment and its ruling functions to control the peoples' lives. It is arguably a Social Marxist populace control system. The lesser functionaries are enticed to follow its dictates by offering sizable financial inducements.
I have an open cps case from all false aligations. They have no proof because i did nothing wrong. I was going to school to be a guardian aladem and I can not do that now because of wv on open cps cases. Their power to ruin peoples lives need to be stopped.
Our baby was home from the hospital for three days when they reported us for the crime of thinking about adoption but changing our minds. Instead of offering us love, and true help, they subjected us to a witch hunt! And the more we read, the more we learn that we are only one of thousands of vctims targeted so CPS and others can financially gain from the sale of children!
Excellent!
CPS is just one example of "human trafficking" by the so-called U.S. Govt thru the states. Elders & disabled are also targeted in the same model for profit under the guise of "protection" & "best interest of". Such profiteering MOTIVES are absolutely intolerable, to say the least, yet are a "pattern & practice" of racketeering" carried on daily across the country.
I have dealt with CPS first hand and in my professional opinion they are completely out-of-control. They illegally in some or most cases take children illegally without a warrant, or just cause. They do more harm than good.and in my opinion are not in the best interests of the children they are supposed to protect. They operate outside the Constitution of the U.S and my state of California and precedent law involving what endangerment is, etc. They take children in the name of money to give themselves a job. Most children do not prosper from being taken and foster homes are worse in many instances then their parental home. Again I have both professional experience with being a former foster parent and a program director for a group home and was recently involved with a mother who had her children taken and I was the caretaker of the children. The Juvenile Court was a total miscarriage of justice as well. I went to court and was given the right to even plead my case. The whole system is a scam. Money is the game. The reason I was given by a CPS worker why they decided not to place the children with me as I would cause them emotional harm. What a crock of crap. I am a Psychologist, Chemical Dependency Recovery Counseling Specialist and I was the caretaker of the children for over 7 years. I raised them. I have not been allowed to have any contact with them as well. Do you call this in the best interests of children? Jerome Plotnick, PhD, C.C..D.C.S.-C.A.D.D.E.
cps needs to be shut down for good ...
CPS did NOTHING to protect my child. They also thought that her father who denied her mental health , who cancelled appointments over and over again for years was a good parent. All the while knowing that she needed to speak with someone because she was suicidal.
For the sake of children and good decent families, CPS desperately needs an overhaul and restructure ASAP. In my case, CPS nor the Court protected my son for sexual abuse by his own father. I was forced to flee the USA in order to protect my son from sex abuse and to protect our lives from my son's father after CPS, the police, the DA, and the Court refused to help us. They saw the evidence that my son's father offered money to men to kill me, mailed a Death Threat to me, and sexually abused my son. The father had strong political connections with the judges and the District Attorney. Please view my You Tube video, 'MOTHER AND SON EXILED FROM THE USA, DOES ANYONE CARE?'. No one should not have to flee the USA to seek protection.

I tried to get my son protected legally by the system for 5 years before I fled the U.S.A. I eventually got my son protected legally in Puerto Rico. Twice, when evil corrupt Judge John Tylwalk, Lebanon County Judge, spend the taxpayers money to fly people to Puerto Rico with Court Orders to take my son back, the Superior Court placed a Court Restraining Order on them prohibiting them from taking my son. They saw the evidence that CPS and the Court knew my son was abused and didn't help him. OVERHAUL AND RESTRUCTURE CPS NOW before they destroy more people's lives, especially the lives of children.

This is sad for the legisaltors laws and the lack of care for whom they are to be working for has led to this result.
Please stop the profit of every state, paying their counties workers cash incentive bonuses to kidnapped children from good families for human trafficking to enslave in the state foster care system allowing the state to profit from federal funding used to help the state to balance their budget by letting innocent children get abused, raped, auction off to pedophiles, sold into sex slavery rings, used as live lab rats for Pharma drug experiments allowing the state to profit even more federal funding from damaging normal healthy children who now become special needs, and from harvesting organs to sell on the black market, destroying our children’s life and their families life forever. All in the name of state profit. Both children and their families are denied equal protection of due process and are denied basic constitutional rights. If a parent is guilty of abuse or neglect it should be treated as a criminal offense and be brought into a criminal court, where both parents and children have the right of a public jury trial instead of secret courts with secret hearing where no evidence is needed to steal children from their home and everyone including the judge profits for allowing innocent families to be destroyed, and children life’s are now enslaved into a very abusive system, whose only best interest is in how many children can be forced into foster care for state profit and the best interest of the children are not given any type of value but are treated as a product for sale for anyone to use for their own sick and perverted desires.
Social cps workers are doing more harm than good.
Yea who is without sin cast the first STONE.
they have to be stoped these r our children not cps s

We had our children taken away for a year on nothing but lies and cps breaking the law. We got our kids back because we proved to them that we were doing right. Now cps is back in our lives taking my daughters premi son from her. They have no grounds at all besides a doctor being ****ed off because my daughter wouldn't take her mouthing off to her. My daughter is 18 so this doctor immediately started harassing her. Now they came in with a court order to remove him from our home, adding our past cps as grounds even though we were cleared. It has been over a year and now they are harassing us again. How can we stop this******from happening? I know families who deserve to have their kids removed but they never get bothered. I need to find an attorney in the Spokane, WA area that will help us.
Something is desperately needed in helping to preserve our families from these kidnappers. I am a grandmother who had an allegation made against me by my daughters ex-boyfriend stating that I smoked pot with him when he dated my daughter. My grandchildren were taken from my care because I exercised my civil rights to rejecting to a drug test to be taken by CPS. I do not do drugs. I have been fighting this ex-boyfriend in circuit court for the last 3 1/2 years due to domestic violence. He gave no proof to the Social Worker, yet I had tons of threatening text messages and facebook messages and the Judge would never let me speak. My rights were violated and there needs to be laws in place for CPS to follow as well as the lower courts. We are not a heard of cattle and should not be treated as such. Loving families are being destroyed and most individuals cannot afford to fight this kind of fight alone. My entire family was destroyed over this.
Our goverment needs to stop giving the funds to the states and let the states support the cps system, due to all the funding, it has been a witch hunt. stop making this a business, for Polinsky or giveing kick backs to hospitals like Rady's Children Hospital. Don't misunderstand me, they do good things, but be very very careful when you take your child there, so many children have been taken away from parents at Rady's Children Hospital, then they go to private own Polinsky recieving home from there Rady's Children Hospital get all involved in the counseling for the children/child and make more money. The system sure doesn't help congresswomen Karen Bass to get her funding for the real abused kids because the system abuses the power the goverment gave to them so there for they are exempt from any wrong doing or anyone to sue them or the states.....thats very sad!!! just look up the history of how cps started with funding, Walter Mondale and then more and more cases were open for states to get more funding and the funding is called General Funds but we tax payers do not know where all the money to General Funds go, what about all our Congress, why don't they cut back on their pay? they make salary but what about the million a year to run the office, that doesn't include all the codel trips and mileage for that family vacation. God Bless the American people for paying out dearly in tax's. CPS HAS TO STOP GETTING FUNDED TO TAKE OUR KIDS AWAY, then the state gets double pay because the parents have to pay for any placement or treatment done, so where does that money go back too our goverment?
In Texas, it appears that even family members aren't considered care givers even when their is no just reason.
In short I am dealing with cpos on completely false information.
My three children were taken Aug. 31 2012. They were not abused nor neglected. CPS took my ex’s mothers word as the Holy Gospel. She lived next door and was calling them every other day. My husband and I got in trouble for growing Marijuana, and that is not the reason they gave us for taking the children, they said it was due to my mental illness. Which they sent me to be evaluated, and it was found that I could have what my ex’s mom claimed (BPD) but that I did not present as a person with this disorder and only time would tell. I took all the classes they wanted my husband and I too, completed treatment, and engaged in services. Then they decided to place my girls with their dad who is Bi-Polar, and his mom. He is not mentally stable enough to have them on his own. Now we are getting my three step kids back, and then my son. And we have to fight for my daughters in family court. GRRRR! My ex and his mom never even wanted to see the girls, or be involved in their lives. Their mission is to make me pay for leaving and having a life. Our case worker wants me to be reevaluated, because he does not think that I am BPD, in fact he thinks that it was wrong that the girls were placed with their grandma and dad, but there is nothing that he can do.
My child and I both were a victim of the atrocities of CPS.
CPS does not protect children. They are kidnappers and the law and judges let them do it. If someone told me or I thought that one of my grandchildren were being neglicted and I went into my childs home and took that grandchild and not let them have him or her back, I would be prosicuted for kidnapping. CPS should have to prove the neglict or abuse before removing any child from their parent. In any CPS case you are guilty and never proven innocent. They destroy families, not just the parents but the whole family. CPS should not exist. If the laws were the same when I was a child, my parents and grandparents would be under the jail. I had respect for my elders and I knew by just the look on their face or the tone of their voice, i had better straighten up.
Family members family divided by cps in Shelbyville KY because of false and exagerated statement.
False statement a family member made on me and boyfriend ripped our family apart. She wanted to rescind her statement and court wouldnt allow.
We have not seen our 13 year old daughter since; December 14, 2011. We are not guilty of abuse or neglect of our daughter.

Please stop these legal kidnappers

Even though it is tragic that there are children actually abused every day, it is just as tragic that there are children and loving parents abused by the government as well.

CPS is unlawful and so are some doctors. A doctor in San Angelo, Tx has abused her power by lying in medical records, misdiagnosing the mother, and had CPS take away a youth relative of mine. We are trying to get her back.
WE the People ARE the only chance that exists with the Civil, Constutional and Unalienable authority and right to TAKE BACK the powers and absue that these ?goverment? {for, by and OF the People} ahnecies have merely "assumed" and were/ARE never intended to have!

Do away with these agencies EVEN IF we must do away with the politicians who support them!
